Ottawa reveals details of emergency immigration program for Ukrainian refugees

Canada has pledged to take in an 'unlimited number' of Ukrainians fleeing the war

The federal government announced Thursday a special immigration program that will allow Ukrainian refugees to live and work in Canada for up to three years.

The program, called the Canada-Ukraine authorization for emergency travel, waives many of the typical requirements for Canadian visa applications.

Applicants do not have to hold valid passports and family members of Ukrainian refugees "of any nationality" can also apply for temporary Canadian residency through the program.

"To the Ukrainians who are defending the values we hold dear, we stand with you not only in our words but also in our actions. Canada will offer safe haven to your families while you fight on the front lines of a war to defend your freedom to the benefit of the entire world," said Immigration Minister Sean Fraser in a news release.

1. Ukraine has long history of settlements in Canada. They will find kindred spirits here.

 

In 2016, there were an estimated 1,359,655 persons of full or partial Ukrainian origin residing in Canada (the majority being Canadian-born citizens), making them Canada's eleventh largest ethnic group and giving Canada the world's third-largest Ukrainian population behind Ukraine itself and Russia.
